  • 15/06/2017: The 5th BinaMIcS workshop will be organised on the week of November 27th - December 1st 2017 in Grenoble (France). Save the date !
  • 01/02/2017: The ESPaDOnS LP is over. More than 1000 spectropolarimetric observations of about 200 short-period binary stars have been acquired over 4 years.
  • 01/04/2016: The multi-site observing campaigns during the apostron and periastron of the PMS system V1878 Ori has been a real success. It involved XMM/Newton for X-ray measurements, ESPaDOnS/CFHT for spectropolarimetry, Hungarian Schmidt telescope for photometry, IGRINS data for IR spectroscopy. Contact Costanza Argiroffi and Gaitee Hussain for more informations.
